The color is a very pretty blend of deep garnet and ruby. The nose is very concentrated. Loads of ripe current, blackberries and red fruits with cedar, almonds, baking spices with hints of molasses and oak. The mouth is overwhelmed by lush fruit and silky tannins. Sweet lingering flavors of flambeed strawberries, sweetened condensed milk and pipe tobacco all stay with you for a very long finish. This is an exemplary ruby style port, that can be enjoyed now or laid down for many years.
